In the sunny wine village of Bronzolo, active holidaymakers love the cosy local life with the best transport connections to the city

In the northern part of the Bassa Atesina area, Bronzolo offers relaxation close to the city: 10 minutes from the centres of Laives and Bolzano, Cabernet, Merlot, Lagrein and Schiava (Vernatsch) grapes grow here at the village entrances. The vines thrive perfectly on the warm sandy-stony soils of Bronzolo, and the grapes are processed into excellent South Tyrolean red wines in autumn. Roman findings such as a vine knife confirm the long history of viticulture in this area. Later Bronzolo was an important port on the Adige River and the northernmost point of the Adige shipping route for the timber trade.

In the last decades, the idyllic village has grown quite a bit, here you can find real Bassa Atesina village life. Especially the train station, which is located a few steps from the centre of the village in the midst of orchards, is a plus point for residents and visitors: It offers a convenient connection to the south and north, even without a car. When you stand in the middle of the village square, you are immersed in earlier centuries. Between historic residences such as the Palais Thomsen and the late Gothic St. Leonhard Church, there is a library as well as refreshment and shopping facilities. The road then ascends past the church towards Aldino, Monte San Pietro and the Monte Regolo, a high plateau with South Tyrol's Grand Canyon.

The Heimatbühne Branzoll, the first travelling theatre in South Tyrol, plays an important role in cultural life. After a break of many years, it now performs plays in German language again. Active holidaymakers are also attracted by the wine village: Lake Caldaro is soon reached to the west, the magical mountains of the Dolomites to the east, Bolzano to the north and the Bassa Atesina region to the south. The Bassa Atesina Cycle Path, which connects the provincial capital of Bolzano with Salorno in the extreme south of South Tyrol, offers a good possibility for excursions.
